FRA, European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights

The first part of European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights’ (FRA) work, presented in a main report and summary, focused on the perspectives of professionals. Child-friendly justice: perspectives and experiences of professionals on children’s participation in civil and criminal judicial proceedings in 10 EU Member States was based on responses from 570 judges, prosecutors, lawyers, court staff, psychologists, social workers and police officers in daily contact with children during criminal and civil proceedings.

This second part centers on the perspectives of children. It is based on responses from 392 children involved in proceedings as victims, witnesses or parties, with a focus on sexual abuse, domestic violence, neglect and custody cases. The research did not cover children suspected or accused in criminal proceedings.
